Black Pudding Recipe
Liam Walsh

When my grandad was younger, his mom used to make black pudding for him and his family.


You need

  • 4 cups of fresh pig’s blood
  • 2½ teaspoons of salt
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1½ teaspoons of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of all spice


  1. Add the oatmeal to boiling water and set aside to soften.
  2. Sieve the blood into a large bowl to remove any clots.
  3. Add the onion, pepper, salt and allspice to the blood. Then, add the softened oats and mix it all together to form a paste.
  4. Then pack this mixture into the cleaned small intestine of the pig. Tie both ends.
  5. Place the pudding into a pot of boiling water and cook for 30 minutes.
  6. When cooked, remove from saucepan and allow to cool.
